Cloud Computing Benefits and Importance on Redesign your IT Infrastructure

Cloud computing can simply be described as computing based on the internet. In the past, people depended on physical computer storage or servers to run their programs. However, with the introduction of cloud computing, people as well as business enterprises can now access their programs through the internet. This kind of computing is rapidly growing in popularity and especially with small business enterprises. To understand why so many businesses are making the transition to cloud computing, let’s have a look at some of its benefits.

Cost savings of the cloud

Opting for the cloud helps a business save money in several ways. For instance, it eliminates the necessity to invest in storage hardware and other physical infrastructure like servers. Besides, a business does not need to hire technical personnel to maintain and service the infrastructure. With cloud service, you pay after certain duration of time depending on the plan you opt for. All you do is use the virtual storage space without giving much attention to the actual infrastructure.

Focusing on core business

In the past, business enterprises which needed large storage spaces found it necessary to hire IT professionals who managed and maintained the infrastructure. Cloud computing is however convenient in the sense that you only concentrate on what means most to you. Since your applications will be run over the internet, you do not have to worry about technical problems and other inconveniences associated with physical unified storage solution spaces. Additionally, you do not have to worry about backup which gives you peace of mind and time to run your business effectively.

Performance and support

One of the things which makes cloud computing so popular to business enterprises is the fact that all your software and applications update automatically. With regards to performance, the cloud service allows employees to work from whatever locations as long as they have reliable internet connection. If the business is going to used shared apps, the employees can sync up their documents so that it looks like they were working from a single office room. Although its rare, most companies which offer cloud computing services are willing to attend to any of their clients should they experience technical problems or in the case devastating scenarios such as data loss.

Security and compliance

In the current computing world, everyone agrees that cloud computing enforces the best security policies which makes it hard for unauthorized parties to access or modify your data. Besides, you don’t have to worry should you lose the data on your hard disk. Laptops get lost and hard disks crash every day but with the cloud service, you can always be assured that your data is safe regardless of what happens to your infrastructure.

Resiliency and Redundancy Criterion of Cloud Computing Platform for Small Scale Business

Resilience and redundancy are important for any business and especially if it depends on digital data to run its operations. Cloud computing platforms are more resilient on failure than traditional storage solutions. This means that if part of the cloud platform fails, the rest of the platforms resources pick on until the problem is corrected.
